New Review for Hidden Heat

Seamus' latest find
To give you an insight into the way my brain is hopping around today, here’s some of the things I’m pondering. Yes, it’s the next installment of Pinky’s POV* time! 1. I read. Gizmo Guy reads. Curly sometimes reads. Therefore our house is filled with books. There are book shelves […]

After trying to promo Hidden Heat’s release while dealing with several other deadlines at the same time, I realized I am not superwoman. I cannot manage to do all the promo myself as well as get the next book written. So after hearing a lot of talk about them at […]

Ah, the agony of lost love. Or love unrequited. I have several variations of it within my stories — Sam pining for his lost love in Personal Protection; Nate forced to listen to the love of his life, Jackson, making love to his bride; Chad pining for Lauren at the […]

Snippet Saturday: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart

A while back I mentioned that we’d gotten Seamus trimmed and I promised to post pictures but it got buried beneath my deadlines. So here he is … the old versus the new: This is him when he’s begging for attention while I’m working at my desk. Hmm, that doesn’t […]
